Weight loss and/or failure to thrive are common in children with symptomatic human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Anorexia is one of the factors that can contribute to the development of growth failure. Food intake in adult HIV-infected patients has been investigated, but virtually no information is available concerning energy and nutrient intake in HIV- infected children. The present study was undertaken to determine dietary intake in HIV-infected children by means of a 3-day food dietary record completed by their mothers.
